Future Forward is a pilot program serving 25 Spanish speaking 5th and 6th grade limited English proficient students in Harrisonburg City Schools through year round advocacy and supplemental educational support. The goal of Future Forward is to ensure that all its students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma or complete a GED that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment. Future Forward students will be assigned to the caseload of a bilingual (English/Spanish) “Advocate” who will conduct regular home visits and phone contact to ensure students’ needs are being met.
